Klay Thompson Smashes Steph Curry's Record for Most 3-Pointers

  • Klay Thompson Sets New NBA Record with 14 Three-Pointers

In case we were wondering whether it was possible for the Golden State Warriors to take their game a new level, they answered that question in the first half against the Chicago Bulls Monday evening.

Thompson drew level with Curry's record in the third quarter before breaking it with five minutes remaining, and later revealed his team-mate had encouraged him to do so.

He was mobbed by teammates as the players headed to the sideline for a timeout in a game the Warriors went on to win 149-124.

Curry hit 13 3-pointers in a win over New Orleans on November 7, 2016.

He had been in a shooting slump to start the season, making just 5 of 36 from behind the arc in the Warriors' first seven games.

The Warriors scored 92 points in the first half of their game against the Bulls.

The 52 points were also the most scored in the National Basketball Association this season, beating out the 51 that Curry pumped in during a win last week. Alfonzo McKinnie had 19 while Quinn Cook added 16 for the Warriors, who converted 24 of 45 from 3-point range.

Zach LaVine scored 28 points and Wendell Carter Jr. added a career-high 25 for Chicago.

Chicago probably would have been overmatched even at full strength. The team announced Tuesday that next season's option had been picked up on the rookie-scale contracts of Markkanen, Valentine and Kris Dunn.

With the game as good as won, it became simply a question of whether the red-hot Thompson would surpass Curry's three-pointer benchmark. Looking to counter Denver's frontcourt and get the Bulls off to a better start, Parker was in the first five instead of Chandler Hutchison. Jimmy Butler had just four points on 2-of-11 shooting for Minnesota, which was booed off the court at halftime after its poor play over the first 24 minutes.

Davis was held out of the Pelicans' past two games because of a sprained right elbow. He also missed two in a row last week because of a bruised left knee.

Trailing by a point, Denver inbounded the ball with 3.5 seconds remaining.

Two-time defending champion Golden State's lone loss came in the third game of the season by two points at Denver on October 21.

Nikola Jokic had 22 points and 12 rebounds, and Millsap's putback with 0.1 seconds left in overtime gave the Nuggets a 108-107 victory against the Chicago Bulls.
